Because every dog wants to be a puppy again
What is Laser Therapy?
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) can effectively block pain message signals so reducing pain, improve healing time, increase circulation and decrease swelling.
LLLT stimulates the body’s cellular response to damage. In soft tissue injures, it increases the production of cells such as macrophages, fibroblasts and mast cells which then accelerates tissue repair and improves chronic conditions.
There are many conditions that laser therapy can be used to alleviate. It has anti-inflammatory, pain relieving and increased healing properties. It is non-invasive and drug free and is easily tolerated by patients.
The results are reducing inflammation in joints, relief of pain, swelling and stiffness and increased mobility.
Therapeutic lasers can be used on their own, in conjunction with conventional medicine, when conventional methods have drawn a blank or where the use of drugs present a problem.
Conditions that benefit from Laser Therapy
Reduces pain and increases mobility in arthritic dogs and dogs that suffer from hip or elbow dysplasia, increases healing time in soft tissue injuries, such as sprains and strains.
Course of Treatment
Treatments vary case to case but normally, cases are seen twice a week for the first 2 weeks, then weekly for 2 weeks, then fortnightly for 2 weeks, then a maintenance monthly visit.
Veterinary referral is necessary. The treatment will be carried out in the comfort of your own home, though if your pet is having therapy at Roundstone Hydrotherapy Centre in Angmering, then I can carry out the treatment there, at the end of their session, if that is convenient for you.
All appointments are from £25.
